    Realize this is probably pointless, but for nostalgia at least, is there any way to get EWR to update the energy bar amount every 2 seconds?

    I really wish to simulate the old energy ticks, as I loved the mechanic, because the overall rate of energy gain hasn't changed, just been smoothed out by switching to 1 energy ever decisecond (10 energy a second) vs. the old 20 energy every 2 seconds.

    I had left WoW and came back, and I'm pretty sure the old Energy Watch did this, so I'm not sure if the functionality for simulating the wave/tick bar has been lost, thanks for a great addon, regardless!!

    Ohsnapjohn: That's an interesting request. The original purpose of EW was to let you know when the next tick was so you could time your opener to maximize your energy afterwards. With a constant flow of Energy, the timing of your attacks is basically irrelevant, you'll have exactly the same amount of energy at any time t after spending any Energy. I actually was going to kill this project when this change was made, as it didn't seem to be needed anymore. It was at this time that many people said that they liked having the bar, even as just a mobile, compact bar to let them track their current Energy and Combo Points. I completely rewrote EW from the ground up, and realized that it would be easy to track all energy types and most of the alternate resources (Soul Shards, Holy Power, etc). Hence where we are today.

    As for trying to approximate the old behavior, there are a couple problems beyond it not having any real use anymore:
    First, the old EW figured out the timing of your ticks by listening to events from the server when you got your first energy tick on login. I don't believe those energy tick events happen anymore. 
    Second, your energy recovery rate is modified by your Haste stat, so simply ticking every 2 seconds (for 20 Energy) wouldn't be accurate at all. I'm sure theorycrafters have reverse engineered the 'energy per decisecond as modified by haste" algorithm, so I could have it tick every 20 Energy, accurately, but...why? In the current system, all that matters is if you have enough Energy to use whatever ability you want to use next. You can tell how close you are by looking at the bar, or reading the text on it.

    Anyway, that's where I stand at the moment. If you, or anyone has any compelling arguments for a change in EW functionality, post them and I'll see what I can do.

    To put it bluntly....

    Holy ever living shit I had no idea haste affected energy ticks now

    Been away from the game for too long....

    In summation, BEST ADDON

    I figured it out my mana bar was to small for it to show fury. Id love to be able to have a fury bar without needing mana. 

    Ty for the work put into the addon

     

  • #207

    It is possible to add more background skins like minimalist and some border skin and size? Another thing: My UI is configured to 400 pixen width bars (sexycoolodwn and quarz), but in this addon the max is 300. Please add some more scale options and skins!!! :) I realy like this addon.

  • #205

    Is there no way to be able to use more than the 4 standard fonts? edit: nevermind i replaced the skurri font throughout wow.

    The combo point tracker is broken on my Monk, its just showing (100) points at all times. (It still works fine on my rouge)

  • #203

    the lua file refers to the "chi"  as "ligth_force" but if modifying this word (that appears 2 times) for the correct "CHI" word, they work.

    on EnergyWatch.lua.

  • #206

    I downloaded the new version from here and manually put it into my addons folder, but still had the issue. So I just renamed light_force to chi as was suggested and that worked.

  • #204

    EDIT:

    I didn't notice that Blizzard had renamed the constant for CHI points. I've uploaded a new version which fixes the problem.

    any chance you could add the moonkin lunar/solar bar as an option?  I don't care about mana on my moonkin, it's pretty tough to run out, but being able to see solar/lunar would be great.

  • #201

    EnergyWatch does support the Moonkin Eclipse info, but not graphically. The bar considers them to be "special points", so it can be shown in the bar text.

    Graphically displaying alternate power types is something on the long-term to-do list.

    tempest420: I'm not able to reproduce this, and besides, EnergyWatch does absolutely nothing with Glyphs, and CastGlyph is nowhere in the EnergyWatch code.

    I'm thinking that this error is in another addon, and Swatter might be pointing at the wrong one...

  • #199

    The error is caused by using global versions of _. If you make all _ local the issue goes away. Blizzard incorrectly used the global version of _ inside the GlyphUI and broke everyone else.
